Instructions Checklist

  • Mix broth, ham, and ham bone into leek mixture; cook, stirring occasionally, over low heat until soup is slightly thickened, about 15 minutes.

  • Blend yogurt, egg yolks, salt, and pepper together in a blender or food processor until smooth; carefully stir into soup. Cook soup until heated through, about 5 minutes more. Remove and discard ham bone.

Cook's Notes:

The chicken broth can be replaced with half chicken broth and half water, if desired.

Fresh spinach can be used in place of the frozen, if desired. If so, cook spinach in boiling water and drain well.

Canadian bacon can be used in place of the ham, if desired.

Great recipe. I substituted the ham for scallops. Definitely will fix again. Also fixed a vegan version for my son who also loved recipe. Both versions I used Silk non dairy yogurt. Read More

I actually cooked the hambone with quite a lot of ham on it to make the broth, then followed the rest of the recipe. I wasn't sure how yogurt would work, but it was delicious. I'll add some potato next time Read More

Great soup and a very tasty way to use leftover ham/bone. In the future I would use more ham than what the recipe calls for. Read More
